"Great Kit"
jimwoodward1943 (Broken Arrow, OK)
Simple instructions; minor flashing; sprue part numbers difficult to read; builder must determine the order of assembly as the instructions lack steps in assembly.

"Great kit"
bhouston3
This kit was easy to use and was to the scale I was looking for. The instructions were easy to follow with a great finished product.

 
"A timeless Hellcat"
jimmbbo
Hasegawa initially produced their F6F in the 1970s, and re-released it a half dozen times since, and was the only large scale F6F kit until Trumpeter released their F6F in 2007. Despite its age, it is still a beautiful kit, and builds easily into a gorgeous model that captures the look of the F6F well, and costs about 2/3 of the Trumpeter offering. While not as detailed as Trumpeter's kit, the molding is petite and accurate, the engine is a work of art and serves as a great start for superdetailing, and the parts fit is great. This kit would make an excellent first big scale kit for a modeler looking to move up from smaller scale models. Additionally, there are literally hundreds of aftermarket items in resin, photoetched and decals on the market to make a truly stunning model.

Information

The Grumman Hellcat was designed from the beginning to take back the skies over the Pacific from the Japanese Zero. Not as maneuverable as the smaller Zero, the Hellcat's speed and firepower usually won the day. In fact, with a kill ratio of 23:1 the Hellcat can claim to be the most effective fighter aircraft ever built.
